Dr. A.S. Desai :

Hello, Welcome to Just Answer

Dr. A.S. Desai :

Are you available for chat now?

JACUSTOMER-5jlkl80t- :

Yes

Dr. A.S. Desai :

It is true that intraocular pressure(IOP) can rise with the use of steroid eye drops.

Dr. A.S. Desai :

whenever the IOP rises it can cause corneal edema which results in blurring of vision.

JACUSTOMER-5jlkl80t- :

well I've been off steriods drops for over 2 mths

JACUSTOMER-5jlkl80t- :

What'sthe Predizone suppose to do

Dr. A.S. Desai :

Your doctor has given the correct drops by giving non-steroidal anti-inflammatory eye drops along IOP reducing eye drops. Tab.Prednisolone is oral steroids and 10 mg a day is not a high dose. Lutein vitamins are good and have anti-oxidant properties which are beneficial to the eye.

JACUSTOMER-5jlkl80t- :

didn't know predizone was a steriod, is it suppose to help

Dr. A.S. Desai :

Yes, it is a steroid with very strong anti-inflammatory effect.

Dr. A.S. Desai :

Oral form does not rise the IOP as much as topical eye drops would.

JACUSTOMER-5jlkl80t- :

still can't figure out why I am on steriods and an anti flammatory drops

Dr. A.S. Desai :

Corneal grafts can be slow to heal and can sometimes take 6-12 months to clear up completely.

Dr. A.S. Desai :

Anti-inflammatory eye drops or oral tablets are given following any intraocular surgery so as to keep the operation induced inflammation under control.

JACUSTOMER-5jlkl80t- :

WEell when I had it done he told me 4 to 6 weeks

Dr. A.S. Desai :

It is given routinely after all intra-ocular surgeries. Yes the usual duration of treatment is 4-6 weeks but in some individuals it may take more time .

JACUSTOMER-5jlkl80t- :

why is that?

Dr. A.S. Desai :

It would be very difficult to know whether the rise in IOP in your case due to the inflammation directly or was steroid induced. So either ways the treatment would still be IOP reducing eye drops and minimal use of steroid eye drops.

JACUSTOMER-5jlkl80t- :

is there anything that I'm doing that could be restricting the healing process

Dr. A.S. Desai :

No, I don't think the healing would have been hindered by any of your activities at all.

JACUSTOMER-5jlkl80t- :

Well I also take a depressiant drug called Klonopin

Dr. A.S. Desai :

Just have patience and follow your doctor's prescription. I am sure he would be as concerned as you regarding the corneal graft and is trying to clear up the corneal edema with the required medicines.

JACUSTOMER-5jlkl80t- :

that's my problem I think he's going overboard on things

Dr. A.S. Desai :

No, Klonopin would not have any effect on the eye.

JACUSTOMER-5jlkl80t- :

well its something to do with nerves, and I thought this might restrict the healing process

Dr. A.S. Desai :

But I guess this corneal edema has to be treated now that it has occured. And so far the plan of treatment has been right.

JACUSTOMER-5jlkl80t- :

thanks for chatting and reassuring me the doc knows what's he doing

Dr. A.S. Desai :

My pleasure.

JACUSTOMER-5jlkl80t- :

Bye

Dr. A.S. Desai :

Bye.Thank you and best wishes.
